This Coconut Chicken Salad has plenty of protein to keep me satisfied, and the warmth of the chicken doesn’t leave me feeling like I’m missing something. It’s perfect for lunch or dinner. More of my favorite warm chicken salads are this BBQ Chicken Salad and Grilled Romaine, Corn, and Chicken Salad with Salsa Dressing.

I’m a huge fan of sheet pan meals as they are a huge kitchen time saver! I like to line the sheets with foil or parchment for easy clean-up, completely optional.

Beets and Goat Cheese Salad

I know beets can be polarizing – people seem to either love them or hate them. I, personally, am a fan. If you’re not sure about beets, this Beet and Goat Cheese salad with Candied Pecans over baby greens is a great place to start. Some people say beets taste like dirt but trust me – once you combine them with sweet, crunchy pecans and creamy goat cheese and then drizzle them with a sweet and tangy dressing, you’ll have a different opinion.
